January 2022 Card Chain Challenge Reveal


I found a new challenge late last year - the Card Chain Challenge! Essentially you sign up and make a card that you send to the person before you in the sign up and the person that signed up after you, sends you a card!

So I signed up for January and made a card to send to Dee in Kenya - this is what I sent her:

Here are the options that we had to make the card:

Theme Options: New / Scraps / Friendship

Product / Technique Options: Glitter or sequins / Embossing Folder

I chose the sketch and the theme of friendship, also I used some new stash that I had not used before!

So I have used Autumn Molli from the wonderful Irina at La-La Land Crafts, along with the Rise & Shine Background stamp and a couple of the sentiments that came with it. Then I have used a Fiskars tag maker that I had bought recently from Spotlight and Cosmic Stickles.
I have stamped Autumn Molli on to X-Press It Blending card using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then coloured with the following Copics:
  • skin - E000, E00, E11, E13, R20
  • hair - E30, E31, E55, E57
  • green - YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97
  • purple - V01 (as my V12 needs more ink!), V15, V17, BV08
  • grey - W1, W3, W5, W7
I followed the colouring of Martha in th'FALL BLESSINGS' FOLIO CLASS from La-La Land Crafts and then I fussy cut Molli.

I then used Elderberry and Nautical Blue Memento ink on the Rise & Shine Background stamp and stamped on to a Kraft card from Envelope Solutions.

I used the Fiskars tag maker to cut out two tags from some white cardstock, I then stamped the two sentiments - one for the front and one for the inside using both the Elderberry and Nautical Blue Memento ink. I used a bit of Art Glitter glue and then the Cosmic Stickles to adhere the tags to the card.

Here are also photos of the inside and the back of the card:

Here is a close up of the colouring of Molli:

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:

I hope that Dee likes the card, although with the delays in postage at the moment, it may have not arrived yet!

Thanks for looking!
